[Ligne directrice - Note] Note du photographe
It was a cold, cold morning, the day we arrived home from are holidays. we were greeted by these crocus trying to grow from a solid, frozen ground with a covering of harsh frost. It was so pleasing to have someone or something turnout on that bitter morning to greet us....I thank you nature for your welcome.

Hi Suzely,

A good composition. Very clear shot.



Very nice shot, Suzanne. Great sharpness and very good depth and colour in this picture. I like it. Well done.

Best regards,


Very beautiful photo, I like the softness of the lighting and of this whole photo. The colors and the sharpness are excellent. Great composition. TFS

Hi Suzley,

This is an excellent photo, the composition is great, colours are also nice and this is not a capture you get everyday. Very sharp as well. Did you add the vignetting effect afterwards?


This is great! The warm colors and cold frost are an excellent combination. The detail is wonderful.

Cold?! It's the evidence it was a surprise for the nature! Frosted flowers look very special! I like that POV! Cme into the garden of ice! :)

Lovely to see some flowers even if covered with frost. Very good closeup with good details.
Sorry, but I just ran out of points.

Well my friend, I see you've done it again. Well done, welcome to winter. You can of course feel the cold from the ice in the photo, however your colors give off a sort of warmth. Very nice, it really is a great photo. TFS...

They are amazing flowers, got some in my garden, really nice to see them this time of year. Nice capture.

I am in awe of the quality of your macro shots, I have several shots of my own but cant get the focal detail you manage to get time after time. The frost on theses flowers is supers, the compositon is very good and the presentaion spot on, especialy with the filtering out of the background. Nice

what a wonderful moment you frozed.
i never seen these flowers . You choose good color for framing.

Well seen! Good details on front with lovely colors. And darken blurry background makes the flower on front more impressive. So nice shot..

Hi Steve,

Great shot! Your flowers are standing up well to the cold here, I love the frosted detail you've focused on. Hope they're ok this weekend as heavy snow is supposed to be returning to the UK. Excellent capture!


The yellow, oranges and olive greens really work for me in this photo. The ice is just...the icing on the top. I like the depth of field, with what looks a bit like a rear set of projections (flowers?) matching the pattern of the foreground (a clump in the centre with a few either side). The darkness suggests very early in the morning, but also helps bring out the brightness of the colours.

The title already says very of that I appreciate. the colors the light and the detail are fantastic!

very well composed photo suzley :)
i like the soft fragile mood here
good work

Great shot. I love the details you were able to catpture. Well done.

Beautiful closeup with nice variations of orange color. Great DOF and sharpness. Nice framing work to.

Well done!


Hello, SF! I love the look of these frosted flowers - they could be coated in sugar! Yummmm. :) The darkness at the top bothers me though, as it dampens the happy mood of the foreground for me. This is a wonderful close-up, though, and a good advertisement for overcoming adversity!

Gayle :)

Very good picture and light on these brave crocus. Good composition with good colours & sharpness. I particularly like the touch of frost on the petals. Well done!

They do survive and they are amazing, although I haven't seen as many this yeas as I normally do. Unfortunately we don't have any in our garden, but we do have snow drops.
A lovely image, which reminds us that spring is here. I just hope it starts warming up soon.
The faded frame works really well here as it draws your eye to the main focus of the image.
Thanks for posting.

excellent composition - nice colors & details. tfs

Well captured, it almost looks like there is a mirror behind and the flowers in the back are the reflection.

This is a wonderful picture. I really enjoy the symbolic feature that you give to the composition. The composition itself is beautiful. The sharpness is excellent. I also enjoy the original framing!

Steve and Suzanne,
Great macro. Excellent timing on your capture as well. I really want to work on my macros and will take your photos as the level I should try to achieve. Keep shooting.

ces crocus sont sortis de terre un peu trop tot,il ne vont pas aimer le gel.mais la photo est tres belle.

Wow! This is great! Very well captured. I like your dark edges too.

This is simply fantastic. And I mean everything from POV to the frame. Professional, artistic work.

No wonder this has so many points...Fantastic job. The colors are rich, and every ice crystal is there in detail. The depth of field is perfect, as is the framing (both in your composition and your choice for a frame). Wow.

Beautiful :)

Very nice and crisp shot. Good lighting and DOF and great composition.
The blend of the warmth of the plant against the obvious cold of the earth makes for quite a scene.
Nice capture.
